If you’re an intrepid foodie with a thirst for travel, this job may be for you.
Social enterprise Vibrant Vegan Co., based in the UK, is looking for a ‘Director of Taste’, and his or her job sounds like a dream — which is basically to travel the world and eat, all expenses paid.
According to the job description posted on its website, the person will be “responsible for finding, then taste-testing new exotic ingredients and recipes”, which may be incorporated into the company’s new products.
The successful applicant will be expected to travel four months at a time to countries such as India, China, Turkey, Chile, Mexico and Japan.
All that, and he/she will receive an annual salary of £50,000 (MYR 200,000), with sick pay and 28 days of leave.
Sounds too good to be true? Well, it’s not so easy.
The taste maestro will have to focus on plant-based ingredients in their research as the company produces vegan products. Good thing is, the person need not be vegan.
In addition, applicants will be subjected to a thorough background check and will need to have at least three years of experience in the food industry or as a chef.
And to separate the wheat from the chaff, palates of successful applicants will also be put to the ultimate (taste) test.
Still a sweet deal, if you ask us.
Said Iain Burke-Hamilton, founder of Vibrant Vegan Co to Insider: “We are always on the hunt for new talent because I’m a firm believer that it’s the people that make a successful company.
“I believe innovation is at the heart food, so I want someone with an innovative and creative mind to help us build on our current recipes.”
Think you fit the bill? Then head on over here to apply.
